CK & Me: June 2010

We’re not sure if it’s the warmer weather or what, but something is heating up your creative mojo. We know this, because we’ve been going through your amazing “CK & Me” layout submissions, and we must say, there were so many wonderful options to choose from this month. Thanks so much to those of you who’ve submitted. We absolutely adore seeing how you translate what you find on the pages of Creating Keepsakes magazine.

Our first featured scrapbooker was moved by this playful design Andrea Friebus created for our January 2010 issue.

"Lego Love" by Andrea Friebus, as seen in the January 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes, page 48.

Reader Kerry Angeles adored Andrea’s use of blocks and decided to make her own Lego look by adding a textured border to her page. We love how she selected blocks that complement the colors of her page. It adds a unique look without taking too much attention away from her very happy photos.

CK & Me submission number two was inspired by this beautiful design created by Stacy Cohen.

"Morning Fix" by Stacy Cohen, as seen in the March/April 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes, page 108.

Drawn to the die-cut background paper on Stacy’s page, as well as the diagonal line Stacy created with the flowers and her photos, Amy LeJeune scrapbooked this stunning page. Her cute photo and the way the white elements pop against the kraft background immediately drew us in!

Our third and final layout for this month comes from seeing this chic page, designed by Kayla Aimee Terrell.

"Then & Now" by Kayla Aimee Terrell, as seen in the May/June 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes, page 96.

Sabrina Ropp really liked the way Kayla Aimee’s “then and now” photos were posed in practically the same way. Since she had photos that spanned the years of her sweet daughter next to the same tree, she decided to follow Kayla Aimee’s lead, and this eye-catching page developed. Naturally, the pictures of Sabrina’s sweet daughter caught our attention. And we also like how she added different paper panels behind each photo.

What’s next? Well, it could be “CK & [insert your name here].” We’d love to see how you’ve been motivated by the projects you find in CK. Simply send us an email with a picture of your layout, along with the name of the page that inspired it (including the issue and the magazine page number the layout can be found on) to letters@creatingkeepsakes.com for a chance to win a special issue and be featured on our blog. And be sure to put “CK & Me” in the subject line.

We can’t wait to see what you submit. In the meantime, we hope you’ll take a minute to congratulate these talented ladies. Their layouts are impressive and inspiring! Thanks for submitting, gals.

Cheers!
Megan Hoeppner, creative editor
